Collinite Insulator Wax

Has any body used this wax?-I waxed a panel about a month ago holding up and beading well-has mold shedding properties,and I'm hoping filiform slowdown.

I used this wax to orbital buff my motorhome when I had it. It worked great!! I love the stuff. I haven't tried it on my AS. I assume it will be the same. The stuff is very tough but easy to work with.

hi darrel

the c-nite products seem to be popular with boaters and the fiberglass/gelcoat crowd.

i've used the insulator wax product on the truck/shell twice, last year.

it goes on/off very easy in warm weather, as do most liquid carnauba wax products...

a minimum of wax residue (during removal) and a nice shine and average durability, about 2-4 month, with 2 coats.

it contains naptha compounds and from the sweet smell i suspect it is benzene...

which is a significant carcinogen, so good ventilation is very important, also GLOVES

because of this solvent base i'd be reluctant to use it on the alcoa clearcoat on our 'streams.

while any quality wax may help prevent/delay the filiform corrosion issue,

caranuba waxes evaporate quickly outside and don't alter existing corrosion.

for these reason i favor using synthetic polymer sealants which generally last longer and have safer product profiles...

cheers

It's used by power companies and you can find it online. There are certain harware and marine stores that carry it as well. Just google it and you'll find it.

Collinite 850 is a metal wax. Here's their description:
The easy to use liquid metal wax cleans and protects chrome, aluminum, copper, brass and stainless steel in one easy step. Will safely remove rust and salt deposits while protecting marine fittings/accessories and car, truck, and motorcycle metal finishes. Contains neither strong acid, nor harsh alkali.

Hey 2air, Here's the description of the insulator wax. If it's good for airplanes and power lines why not AS's?
This heavy duty liquid wax was originally developed for use by electric power companies for protection against high voltage power failure, fires and explosions. It's primary use is on the finishes of automobiles, trucks, buses and airplanes where durability, high gloss and lasting protection are paramount. An excellent choice for fleet applications and very easy to use--requires minimum rubbing or buffing. Clear coat safe. The favorite of professional detailers throughout New England. Apply by hand or machine with long lasting results.

The MSDS is posted on the collinite web page- yes to naptha compounds no to benzines- but most good automotive waxes have solvents including Walbernize super seal. oddly enough I found this wax at Harbor Freight $12.95-researched it and tried it,liked it--Darrell

i find the entire 'power line thing' a funny story...

and have never seen a lineman waxing insulators.

we've got some real linemen here, maybe they can tell us about waxing insulators...

naptha is used generically as a term for a subset of petrol solvents and USUALLY contains moderate amts of benzene.

regardless the product has a very HIGH SOLVENT content, which is why it's so liquid/creamy in texture.

please wear gloves with this stuff and be careful with ventilation.

comparisons to walb' are fine but walb' is a horrible product to use on newer 'streams, imo.

and c-nite is NON abrasive, which is an IMPROVEMENT over walb'...

folks should try lots of brands and decide 4 themselves, there are loads of brands that someone will like.

YMMV
